WOMEN IN SPORT

Sport Manitoba leads the way with initiatives, grants and workshops that increase and enhance opportunities for participation by women in sport.

Workshops

If your sport or community is interested in hosting a workshop, please contact Janet McMahon at 204-926-8350 or janet.mcmahon@sportmanitoba.ca

Increasing Physical Activity and Sport for Women 55-70 

Raising the awareness of the the importance and benefits of physical activity for women of this age group, we focus on the barriers, solutions and best practices that will provide opportunities to coordinate and develop resources on mulitple levels.

Women and Leadership Program

CAAWS' Women and Leadership Program consists of five development sessions that blend theory with practical applications, and provide an opportunity for women working or volunteering in sport, active living, recreation or the school system to share experiences, ideas and successful techniques.  Sessions include:  Effective Communication, Conflict Resolution, Influencing Change, Creating Work Life Balance and Effective Networking.

Unleash Your Leadership Potential:  A Workshop for Young Women

An interactive experience combining theory and interactive exercises.  This workshop caters to young women aged 15-20 who are involved in sport, recreation or physical activity as athletes, coaches or volunteers and hope to continue to contribute in their future career or volunteer activities.  Deliverable in a two or three hour format, the workshop covers the range of leadership skills and attributes which will assist young leaders to take on roles as planners and decision makers during their school years and beyond.

Women to Watch Grant

A major initiative is the Women to Watch Grant Program. Working in partnership with Provincial Sport Organizations and Coaching Manitoba, Sport Manitoba provides a monthly grant of $500 to a female athlete, team, official or volunteer to assist them in enhancing their women in sport career.

A $500 monthly grant is also awarded to a female coach to assist them in further developing the skills necessary to attain a higher level of coaching or increased level of coaching experience.  

You can find the Women to Watch application on our Grants and Services page under the heading: Athletes, Coaches, Parents.
